Apprentice Program

Our on-farm apprenticeships provide a solid foundation in sustainable agricultural practices. 

Founded in 2007, our apprentice program is designed to provide a solid foundation in sustainable agriculture and additional training in managerial skills for aspiring farmers with some previous experience. Each year, we welcome six apprentices to our Farm in Cold Spring, NY for an 8-month Vegetable Apprenticeship and a 10-month Livestock Apprenticeship. Through a combination of classroom and in-field instruction, apprentices gain experience with the broad array of skills needed for success in managing a sustainable farm. We have trained close to 50 aspiring young farmers to date, a majority of whom have continued careers in agriculture and local food systems.

Glynwood Apprentices receive: A private, furnished room in a shared Apprentice farmhouse at Glynwood; a weekly stipend; and workers compensation insurance.
